My little darling is no longer a baby- she's officially 2-years old as of 18th of this month- I can hardly believe it. On Saturday we celebrated her birthday with close friends and family. A Mexican fiesta seemed to suit the celebratory soirée. So with ponchos, tacos, face-paint, and of course a cactus piñata- the birthday party was a smash of a good time.
The weather started a little uneasy with some grumpy clouds and a few sprinkles here and there, but the sky cleared and the sun beamed down on our little seniors and senioritas. With festive colours and a lively crowd of excited munchkins the afternoon flew by. The heat and humidity spiked mid-day, but the cold red wine cherry-lime Sangria, dilly bars, ice-cream sandwiches, old fashioned root-beer, cream soda, orange pop, and some shade thanks to some lovely old trees, kept everyone in carefree fiesta mode.
Here are some of my fav pics from the day!
Treat bags! God, I loved those as a kid.
Love mexican banners- AKA- 'happy paper'
My three very good mama friends- Mary-jo, Suz and Jeanna who I met through teaching mom and baby yoga with our little ones when they were just 4-months old. Mauh! xx
Jackson and Danica hiding out in the play tunnel.
Leala with her precious daughter Indigo. They came to Morgan's 1st birthday party last May, and are always such a whimsical, loving addition to our posse of loved ones.
This uber sweet little wicker set is going to be very popular for tea parties in our backyard this summer! Could have gotten it in all pink, but I couldn't say no to the yellow sofa, it's dreamy, like sitting on sunshine.
Sweet, sweet Nathan,
AKA- Morgan's boyfriend,
a little shy at first but he claimed his girl in no time.
The kiddies loved having there own place to chill-
a great way to make amigos.
The pinata was hilarious. Morgan was so gentle, but totally into it.
I haven't laughed that hard in a long time. Pure entertainment.
A savage at the job. He he.
The other kids could hardly wait to take their smack at it.
So much suspense, Brydon had to use his sandals
as a line to keep them back!
Little January taking her killer swing.
Ready to dominate this cactus.
(Our gorgeous flower girl from our wedding-
not so little anymore)
Morgan was so content to open every present, even the cards!
The guests were loving the birthday present frenzy.
Nathan was like her gift opening support-
sat there the whole time, just happy to be next to his #1 girl.
Having a snuggle with Uncle Ryan and Auntie Domi.
She sure loved her Very Fairy Princess Book.
My birth parents- Sandi and Rob!
What a trip. How wonderful.
Suz's beautiful baby belly in the background.
Love this pic of my two sisters, Kenzie and Taylor
soaking in the bliss of watching their niece open her gifties.
So into these little pound puppies.
Can you believe how much she's changed! We can't. I must pinch myself a hundred times a day- all the amazing moments- so tiny and yet so incredible. Happy 2nd birthday sweetheart. Mommy and daddy love you to the ends of the universe and back. xxxxx
